I’ve seriously never met a child who doesn’t love a Sloppy Joe! The hearty, sweet and tangy sauce is a throwback to my childhood! Both my mom and my grandmother served us Sloppy Joe sandwiches when we were little, and they have now become a staple in my own house as well.

But guess what?! I figured out a way to make the classic Sloppy Joe even easier. I bet you didn’t think that was possible!

I used the Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce for this recipe, but you can also try the Manwich Bold or the Manwich Thick & Chunky versions. Choose your family’s favorite, since any variety will work well here. In addition to the sauce, you will just need a box of uncooked rotini pasta, shredded mozzarella cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, fully-cooked meatballs, and water.

In the baking dish or in a separate bowl, stir together the sauce, meatballs, and uncooked pasta.

Once the raw ingredients are in the baking dish, just cover tightly with foil and bake it in the oven for about 35 minutes. The pasta will cook and absorb most of the liquid, leaving a thick, rich sauce at the end.

The cheese goes on top of the casserole during the final 5 minutes of baking, just until it’s melted. Then garnish with any of your family’s favorite toppings!

Dump-and-Bake Sloppy Joe Casserole
Author: The Seasoned Mom
Prep time:  10 mins
Cook time:  40 mins
Total time:  50 mins

Serves: 8
 

Ingredients
  • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked rotini pasta
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce
  • 3 cups water
  • 16 ounces fully-cooked miniature (bite-size) meatballs (if using frozen meatballs, make sure that they are completely thawed before using)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional Garnish: sliced tomatoes, sliced olives, diced avocado, sliced green onion

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In prepared dish (or in a separate bowl), stir together uncooked pasta, Sloppy Joe Sauce, water, and meatballs. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  3. Uncover; stir. At this point you should check the pasta to make sure that it is al dente (firm but just about finished cooking). If it’s still too hard, cover the dish and return to the oven until pasta is al dente. Then move on to the next step.
  4. Sprinkle mozzarella and cheddar cheese over the top and bake uncovered for 5-10 more minutes (or until cheese is melted and pasta is tender).
  5. Garnish with optional toppings just before serving.
